 Merit360 is Our flagship program operates each year on every continent until 2030 in order to create and coordinate our plans to help achieve the Global Goals. We are the constructive alternative to a potentially destructive disenfranchised youth. When so many of theupcoming generation are marginalized and unemployed, we are motivating and deploying young people from all backgrounds to make positive change.Today, more than half of the world’s population is under 30 years of age, making millennials the biggest generation of young people the world has ever seen. Being the best-educated generation that has ever existed, millennials have the potential to change the course of history and lead the planet on a path to greater prosperity, peace and ultimately, sustainable development. to ensure a successfully implement the Sustainable Development Goals, young people’s imagination, creativity and idealism must be cultivated and used as a means to achieve this dream. However, to harness the power of youth, firstly there is an urgent need to educate them about the importance of the SDGs and secondly to provide them with opportunities to implement these goals through local action. Currently, many young people are not familiar with the concept of sustainable development and its global implications. This reinforces the need for a program that brings SDGs close to students, teachers and education institution in a serious attempt to build consciousness and leadership around this agenda. Therefore, World Merits’ vision is to generate interest about sustainable development among youth in an effort to educate and engage students with the SDGs and to encourage them to prioritize the goals in their lifestyles, behaviors, education and professional careers.
